Notes/Commercial Description:
Allagash Curieux was the first foray into barrel aging. Curieux is made by aging our Tripel Ale in Jim Beam bourbon barrels for eight weeks in our cold cellars. The aged beer is then blended back with a portion of fresh Tripel. The resulting beer is soft with coconut and vanilla notes, with hints of bourbon.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A: pours a slightly hazy orange with a finger of white head that fades into a thin layer with a little lacing.

S:some Belgian spices up front followed by candy sugar and orange citrus. Lots of vanilla, oak, and bourbon follow. Smells quite nice.

T: Belgian spices at first along with some candy sweetness. Woody oak and bourbon flavors follow with a decent alcohol burn.

M: medium body with lowish carbonation, this beer is a bit thick and underattenuated for the style, though that can be expected with the barrel aging.

O: a good beer overall, though the bourbon overwhelms the tripel aspects at times.
